Texas A&M football coach issues apology following freakish Twitter recruiting rant

Bishop Gorman quarterback Tate Martell looks to pass against Bellevue on Sept. 11 2015

Bruin Report Online stated earlier this week, "Now we're not saying Martell is on the verge of de-committing and we're also not saying UCLA has suddenly become the team to beat for the 5-star quarterback".

What's the lesson for college football coaches?

The fun then ensued: Texas A&M not only lost Martell, but it then lost a 5* wide receiver commitment, a 4* running back commitment, and another 5* prospect with Texas A&M on his radar. I can't even vibe with you. Obviously that isn't good for A&M, but at the end of the day this is a high school student trying to make the best decision for his career moving forward. There is no accountability and no sense of positivity when it comes to adversity.

Though Moorehead originally doubled down on his rant - "People act like the truth is all the sudden a bad thing". Soon after, another Aggies recruit, receiver Mannie Netherly, , the No. 181 overall player in the ESPN 300, posted on Twitter that he was also reversing his commitment.

Texas A&M's loss might be Ohio State's gain. If a prospect loved you once, they can love you again. If Moorehead was hurt, there's nothing wrong. This is a business for both sides - the schools and the kids - and there's only one side that's getting paid for theirs.

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that a top-level high school recruit decides to reopen themselves to recruiting after what seemed like a rock solid commitment.

Shortly after those initial comments, Moorehead returned to Twitter, doubling down on his initial thoughts and calling out those critical of his comments.
